The former site of the Peoples Temple, San Francisco

I’m taking part in my first Obscura Salon tonight as we talk about San Francisco’s criminal history.  I’ll be talking about the city’s connection to the Manson Family, the Zodiac, and the Peoples Temple.

Other speakers will discuss the Vigilance Committee, opium and tongs in Chinatown, and the dirty laundry of Alcatraz.
